Hello ! I am seriously unable to tell if 2 of my mollys are pregnant, ive had em for maybe a month now, unable to tell if they’re fat or pregnant.
Here are some photos, they both look like this was unable to snap a pic of the silver one.5D3A1348-440E-4065-8F9F-85717704BEDD.jpeg4004DFFB-F3E3-488E-915F-97019973351D.jpeg
They’re paired with a male dalmation and they’ve all been together for around a month like I've said, just need to know if they’re fat or pregnant and whether to buy another breeder box or not.

It looks like it's pregnant. I would say that this fish is almost going to give birth.

I accidentally joined the schools FFA without realizing and I have an SAE, supervised agricultural experience. Pretty much gotta like internship or do stuff related to agriculture. I read the list and breeding fish in the aquarium trade for profit was an option. I wanted to give it a try since one of my mollys already had 2 fry, i plan on setting up a separate breeding tank when i get the cash.
